In this first book of the Gastien series, young Gastien Beauchamp begins his journey from the farm to Paris with two goals in life. The first is to become an artist with his own studio, following his own rules. That is an almost impossible dream for a peasant with no money or formal training. Paris spits out talented men into the gutters every day. “Good” gets you nowhere. “Great” maybe gets you a bowl of soup.

The second is to become the greatest lover in France. That should be easy. With his stunning looks and willingness to learn, the women of Paris are about to be awakened in a way they have only dreamt about in the nineteenth century!

Gastien also has focus, drive, and raw, natural talent. With the dream burning inside of him, he is determined to succeed at any cost. Poor Gastien. If he could only know in advance what brutal struggles await him, he might turn around and go back home.

Sometimes the “impossible” is possible. But the cost can be extremely high.

A story about a little person in a very big world.

Magnus Mandalora never thought he would leave the safe confines of the small homely village of Lower Kertoob. He certainly never expected to end up in the middle of a long-running war between the saintly Cherines and the beastly Glurgs. But when circumstance places him in such a dubious position, he finds himself on a rollicking adventure where nothing is quite as it seems.

Magnus Opum is an epic fantasy that's slightly skewed – Tolkien with a twist.


*****


Do you ever get one of those moments when you want to lose yourself in a book that is totally magical, brimming with imagination and fantasy, and entertaining from start to finish? This book by the very talented Jonathan Gould is the very thing that delivers on all counts.

Magnus Opum is an epic fantasy that's slightly skewed - Tolkien with a twist.

Magnus Opum is a wonderful story - there's no doubt about that.  Magnus has a quest and he embraces it fully, it takes him to new places and he encounters new races during his adventures.  However, it's the things that Magnus learns that really make this story shine for me.

It takes a quiet approach to its storytelling, but also regales the reader with a frothy sprinkling of satire and wit.

At the end of the day, the story of Magnus Mandalora of the small homely village of Lower Kertoob is fun, funny, educational, and a master work of both parody AND satire rolled into an easy-to-read family-friendly story. - Jeremy Rodden, author of Kindle bestselling cartoon novel - Toonopolis: Gemini (Toonopolis Files, #1)

Enter a world of vignettes and stories about Australian life in the 60's, as seen through the eyes of Tommy Lee Tippett, a boy whose life is filled with innocence, wonderment and hardship. Tommy’s family is dysfunctional, but in the nicest sense. Tommy’s Granddad is never far from his horseracing papers and never slow to retell an outrageous tale. Uncle Jack’s life revolves around riding in buses and regaling strangers with stories about bizarre bus routes. 

Tommy’s twin sister, Annette is mentally handicapped and it befalls Tommy to look after her. His mother Norma is a severe woman who loves her children but is torn between her love for them and the love of a man. Tommy’s story inhabits the golden sands of Bondi Beach and the exclusive suburbs of Sydney, where Tommy finds himself in a stately mansion as well as the home of the American Consul. The tales of Tommy Tippet will touch you and give insight into a well woven, gorgeous tale that lies against the backdrop of Australian life in the 60's, parenting, family and more.
